your thoughts on, you know, the next generation now, inspiring young people. that's what you guys are all about, right? >> well, you know, that's what space shuttle endeavor is all about. she served 25 amazing missions, she's the newest of the fleet, and now her newest mission, her 26th mission, has inspired the next generation of space explorers. >> i know you and i talked about the fact that it was your first shuttle flight. but what a spectacular vehicle, right? i mean, for my money, probably the most spectacular flying machine we will ever see in our lifetimes. except for that helicopter that's going overhead and interrupting us. >> as a former air force flight test engineer, i know all about airplanes and spaceships, and i was truly inspired and impressed with shuttle endeavor. we had leg room. we had a fancy glasscock pit. we really flew up to the space station, finished o job and all without any hiccups.
